Re: If NZ undertook a 10 match tour of UK/ Ireland....???

Assuming the conditions would be the same as this Lions series so that's 4 tests 3 with Southern Hemisphere refs and 1 Northern Hemisphere ref ..... likely a Frenchie.

I'd go 7 wins 2 losses and a draw.

Re the ABs I'd leave the pack intact. They are more than up for it.

In the backs ... you may yet see a recall for Fekitoa .. would Hansen risk Ioane at centre ????

My backline would be

15 iDagg
14 R Ioane
13 Fekitoa
12 Laumape
11 J Savea
10 Barrett
9. Smith

Re: Decision to take Kaino off and replace him with Laumape

Thought Hansen made the right decision. And it so very nearly worked out for the team. A bobbling line out steal at the end nearly turned the tide. AB pack was immense last night. Credit to the Lions for finding a way through the 14 man opposition in the final quarter.

SOB is an absolute world class loose forward. He has to start in the Lions back row next week vs the ABs. If Warburton is selected ??? then SOB has to play 6. He's cut from the same cloth as McCaw. Watching SOB and Kaino go at each other for 60 +mins would have me wanking like a teenager.
